What It Is
The FirstBIKE is a two-wheel balance bike meant to develop a child's sense of balance, motor skills, and self-confidence. Because there are no pedals, kids use their feet to push off and propel themselves forward on the bike. The bike has a minimum seat height of 12 inches, and as children get taller (and also faster), the seat height and brake sensitivity can be adjusted without the use of tools. FirstBIKE features a flexible and shock absorbent high-tech frame to protect a child's spine as well as a rear-drum braking system. The bike's seat is a "horse saddle" seat to prevent children from slipping off while riding downhill. At only 8.6 pounds, FirstBIKE is very lightweight, making it easy to transport. There are a variety of different styles (Basic, Street, Cross, Racing, and Limited) and colors ranging in price from $129.99 to $199.99.
Is It Fun?
Learning how to ride a two-wheel bicycle can be difficult for kids. Balance bikes help kids feel comfortable and confident as they learn to ride. FirstBIKE is a great, easy-to-use bike for first-time riders. It gives little kids an encouraging and progressive start to bike riding.
Who It’s For
FirstBIKE is for ages 2–5. The maximum weight limit is 55 pounds.
